About Dayenu: A Jewish Call to Climate Action
Dayenu is building a movement of American Jews confronting the climate crisis with spiritual audacity and bold political action. We mobilize Jewish support for climate solutions, build our collective power, and raise up a spiritual, religious, and moral voice in the national and global movements confronting the climate crisis. We care deeply about equity and justice in our world and about the future we create for our children and future generations. We believe that together, drawing from our Jewish tradition, experience, and faith, we have the power to create real and lasting change.
We focus on three main areas of work: Bold action to advance comprehensive climate policy and ensure a just transition away from fossil fuels; spiritual adaptation that helps people confront the reality of the climate crisis and grapple with the deep spiritual and existential questions it raises; and movement-building.
Through a growing network of Dayenu Circles across the country and partnerships with Jewish communal institutions and multifaith and secular organizations, we’re gathering, training, and taking collective action to advance systemic solutions to the climate crisis, at the scale that science and justice demand.
